This A-Frame at the Top of the World Was Built in a Day

New, 2 comments

Commissioned and built by the family of Luca Vuerich, a mountaineer who died in an avalanche in 2010, this simple A-frame cabin can fit a surprising 9 guests. The only thing is, you have to hike up to an outcropping on Italy's Foronon Buinz Mountain over 8,000 feet above sea level to spend the night.

Recently featured in Hide and Seek: The Architecture of Cabins and Hide-Outs, the dwelling was designed by Giovanni Pesamosca Architetto, and built in a single day, from computer-cut larch wood panels brought to the site by helicopter. HuffPost has interior photos, plus more selections from the book, which is out now Gestalten.
